Pulled from the 'box' as part of a blind wine tasting, I didn't think this wine bad, but no one at the table thought spectacular either. More tart with dark plum components, this wine does have a nice long finish, but probably is best with some food. I really learned about the 'clear water band' with this wine (the thicker the band, the colder the growing region).

While there is not much to say about this, I am more interested in the other wines put out by this company.
